This Crochet Slippers with Flip Flop Sole Craft Project is how to turn a simple pair of cheap flip flops into some lightweight crocheted house shoes with this simple tutorial.
Slippers made crochet style? It is very stylish and very possible. With the same cotton yarn plus a rubber sole, a pair of crochet slippers can be made at home with beautiful precise measurements and style for inside and outside usage. They are like the Tom shoes, but with some open air along the sides and top of the feet. It fits with all types of weather (short of snow)because they are comfortable use the soles and are breathable when walking. These kinds of shoes are going to be the most comfy and snug pair for the feet among the shoe collection.
To start with, get a sole from a pair of flip-flops and poke holes with a strong needle along the sides and edges on top of the sole. Each hole should be evenly spaced out, no more than ¼ inch apart. Pick out a heavy yarn color that matches the sole. It is sc to for every hole and to join when using the needle and yarn. (Hopefully, you know the terminology when it comes to crocheting because it is going to be very confusing for any newcomer to crocheting – and very long.) Repeat the process multiple times, constructing every row, make the stitch tighter, ending below the ankle.
It will go mainly like this: Ch 1, sk first slst, slst in next sc, sc in each sc. Make sure it fits all around the heel, side, and the toes, with plenty of room to move them.
The end result in this whole day project is a beautiful homemade piece of footwear. For the professional crocheting, try it out. It is easy, yet a mind game in getting every inch fixed and make sure it is completely settled.
